Thank you to our friends at MINDSHIFT for posting this article on research based strategies to help children develop self-control. This article focuses on the work of Psychology Professor Walter Mischel. Read the full article here.

Of course SELF-CONTROL is one of the key protective factors identified by the DECA as key in developing a resilient child. This is the focus of our AWARD-WINNING CD title: I CAN SETTLE DOWN: Songs of Self-Control. This CD is available from many education and general market distributors and on iTunes as well. The music on this project is also a key focus in several GROWING SOUND Professional Development Training Workshops including: Songs of Resilience; Music for Social and Emotional Development and Songs For A Peaceful Classroom. Contact us if you are interested in having DAVID KISOR visit your school to present these workshops.
